Rejected by 2 exit ops after on-sites where 2 of 3 recruiters sent a personal message/email saying something like "you seem great/qualified but not the right fit". One said "the HM said you seem really bright and would hire asap if we were looking for a generalist". Another said "this isn't about weakness or lack of experience, just questions on fit". Do recruiters say this to a lot of people or is this genuine? Trying to gauge whether my interview performance is at least solid.

Former is a technical role and latter is non-technical if it matters.

Hmmm I feel like I can't tell. Got a great vibe going with the first 3 interviews for the latter opportunity but just less so (he dived deeper than expected and it was much more formal than expected) on the last of the 4 interviews. For interviewers looking to build rapport I feel like I helped build it. For the one looking to dive deep, it wasn't like that / it wasn't about building rapport, as I didn't feel like that was expected.

Which companies are doing on sites these days

Your interview performance in terms of technical and behavioral questions is fine. It is just a matter of airport test as someone else said. You should google things like "how to build rapport with your interviewer".

Hi all! For an experienced hire as a Human Capital Consultant at Deloitte, what should I expect the salary/sign-on bonus to be at a MCOL city?

Already did my research but the range is kind of all over the place for experienced hires so just want to have a ballpark. Thanks!
